Converting SolusVM Master to Slave

Converting SolusVM Master to Slave

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had any experience in converting a SolusVM master node to a slave node? Tried looking it up, found a post in '09 stating to run the install on the master to install as a slave; but it's not working... Anyone got any clues?

  • you should be able to just:

    • backup your SQL
    • uninstall MySQL/lighttpd from said master
    • nuke /usr/local/solusvm
    • re-run the installer

    And it should see it as a virgin node.

    solus told me;

    Re run the installer.

    I haven't done it yet but that is what they said.

  • @Francisco, Thanks a lot man, really appreciate it greatly! I shall make a backup and try it out =).

    @DotVPS, I tried that, it did not work. =(

    Who told you that, Santhosh or Rajesh? It seems like some BS they would come out with..

  • I did this one before but months ago.

    Last time I remembered, Solus would still believe that the node was localhost, so you went into the database and updated all the VPSs etc to use the new node, but Solus would fuck up.

    You always have to have a localhost node. Always.

    Most of their code wraps around checks to see if the node is there or if you're provisioning to said master.

    You shouldn't need to 'replace' it, simply move the master to the new spot, convert the old master to a slave then relink it to the master and it'll appear as a slave.

    I know it sucks.

    This will help you not miss all the little details of moving the master then make the old master a slave by eithr migrating all the VM's off it and start fresh or remove all the crap and run the installer again as a slave

    You didn't mention kavi?

    but no it wasn't any of them lot.

  • @DotVPS said: You didn't mention kavi?

    I haven't had the pleasure of dealing with him :)

  • @Francisco, Hey, I haven't done what you said yet; but do you know if that process will kill the current OVZ containers on the node or will it preserve them?

    Okay so It crashed , I asked for a reboot it seems to have done most of the solus reinstall but it corrupted /etc/vz/vz.conf but i pulled that from another node and its working fine now :)

  • @AsuraHosting said: @Francisco, Hey, I haven't done what you said yet; but do you know if that process will kill the current OVZ containers on the node or will it preserve them?

    It won't touch it. If you want to be 'extra safe', you can install run the slave installer and just tell it 'no virtulization' and solus will only install its core files and leave VZ well enough alone.
